‘Tis the Season …. Autumn

This is a very belated post from the October “Faux Pumpkin” classes – one held at Icarus Creative Arts Studio and the other at Seapoint Properties.  Everyone got a small “faux pumpkin”, along with an Identipen.  We used the nature-created lines of the pumpkins…

“Tangled Linens” ….

This past Sunday found nine of us gathered for some Zentangle time at Icarus Creative Arts Studio at the Winery.  It was nice to see returning faces, as well as new, joining in the fun.   Today I shared a class that was introduced…

Black on White …. Sea Turtle

Judy, Julie and I met last week for their monthly “Tangle Night”.  This time sea turtles were the topic of the day, using the sea turtle template from “Tangle Easy – Sea Life” by Ben Kwok.  There are so many great templates in this…

“A Tangled Forest” ….

This past weekend saw eight ladies and one young man creating “tangled forests” – a class shared by Marie Browning when I attended Tangle U earlier this year.  It was a fun class to create on a very warm San Diego afternoon.  Everyone received…

“Dingbatz Kind of Day” …

Today was “Dingbatz Day” at Icarus Creatives Arts.  But first, I had to get there ….. I’ve been suffering from a sore back the last month, with it flaring up this past week.  My husband helped me carry the class supplies to my car,…

“Found and Tangled Words” …

Although today’s class was small, we had a nice quiet afternoon creating “Found & Tangled Words”.  In fact, after today’s class, I think the only way to have this class is in a nice, quiet environment …. it’s hard to look at those words…

“Linen Panels” and “DingbatZ”!

Last week, Judy and I got together for our monthly tangling session.  Julie usually joins in as well, but had other obligations this month.  Having just returned from Tangle U in Portland, Oregon, with fresh, new ideas, I decided we would give the tangled…

“Tangled Trivets” ….

Last Sunday at Icarus Creative Arts, five of us came together to tangle us some trivets ….. 7″ cork trivets covered with a Kraft-tex “zendala style” tile.  I decided to draw out the string ahead of time to save on class time as sometimes…

“Tangle U 2018” …

I’ve just returned from Portland, Oregon and attending “Tangle U 2018”.  Tangle U is a gathering of CZT’s from far and wide, coming together to learn new techniques and ideas for our Zentangle practices.  It was attended by about 125 people this year and…
